I really like the feature of "ls /" to display evevrything under c:/
If that's *really* what you want, i.e. you want all your unix/linux-style
usr, lib, etc, bin, var (and so on) directories scattered amongst your
win32-style "Documents and Settings", "Program Files", "WINDOWS" (and so on)
directories in your C drive root directory, you should just install cygwin to
C:\ instead of installing it to C:\cygwin by changing the default install
location when you run setup.exe.
Actually, if you don't mind sucking up precious mount points (doesn't
Cygwin have a limit of 32 or something like that?), I would assume you
can mount (ahem) EVERYTHING in C:\cygwin to the proper /bin, /lib, /etc,
etc location and have / mounted as 'C:\'... but ooh that would be ugly.
And don't ask me what problems it might cause... Better to listen to
Don't use a hippo to... what was I saying?
